the world. >> myself, i'm 45 years old. and, you know, i'm not in the best shape in the world, but one thing -- i'm continually trying to get better, and my hair is just one less problem i ever have to think about. >> i feel normal. i feel like i could be anyone walking amongst someone who, you know, everybody looks at anymore, like, weird. i'm just normal, and i look great, and i get compliments on my hair all the time. >> welcome back. let's get right to the root of the problem -- hair loss and what causes it. now, hair loss affects more than 70 million people in north america today -- 40 million men and 30 million women. that's a lot of people. some people try products that claim to regrow hair only to find out a few hundred dollars later that they didn't work. don't waste your money on unproven remedies. if you care about how you look and you want to get your hair back, let's hear from some of the world-class doctors in our network. >> by far, the most common cause of hair loss is genetic. by age 50, 50% of the adult
5:01am
population have experienced enough hair loss to be noticeable. >> hair loss is different for men and women. male-pattern hair loss is the most common form of hair loss, representing more than 90% of all male cases in north america. it occurs due to a hormone called dihydrotestosterone, commonly known as dht. dht causes a shortening of the life span of the hair follicles in these men. dht chokes the hair follicle and it eventually shuts down. the follicle's resistance to dht or lack of resistance is genetic, and that's why some men go bald and some don't. >> actually started losing my hair at a pretty young age -- actually in college. and hair loss is in my family, so i definitely knew what the future had for me. during that process, i tried many things. i tried drugs -- that wasn't working. i grew my hair out, did the comb-over. that was awful. i wore hats a lot. and nothing was working. >> female-pattern hair loss is
5:02am
different from male-pattern hair loss in both appearance and sometimes in terms of the cause itself. for women, there are many different causes of hair loss, including female-patrn thinning, which is a form of male-pattern thinning, menopause, postpartum or stress-related shedding, or alopecia areata. someone can experience hair loss due to poor hair care or tight braiding of the hair, which can permanently damage these follicles. >> when i began to lose my hair, i lost some of my self-confidence, my self-esteem. i really felt that people were looking at my hair and not me. i had already tried gels and clips and wigs and pieces and brushing my hair, combing my hair all different ways. really didn't feel sexy. >> everyone who walks in our door has a special and unique situation. hair club is uniquely positioned to treat hair loss because we offer all proven solutions to

5:06am
available only at hair club, the bio-matrix strand-by-strand process is known around the world as the gold standard in hair replacement. hair club's groundbreaking technology is the only process availae to date that gives you a full, healthy-looking head of hair by adding real human hair to your own hair. bio-matrix is not a toupee. it's not a wig. it's a custom-made blend of your own hair with real human hair that is matched to your individual requirements. that includes hair color, facial structure, and skin tone. the process is natural and virtually undetectable. when you brush your hair, it all blends together. if someone touches your hair, it feels normal. it's easy to style. you can rough it up. you can go swimming, biking, jogging, or anywhere life takes you, and you will look great. >> i can swim, i bike, hike, i do everything, and the key point here is no one has noticed. everybody thinks i look better, but they can't quite put their
5:07am
finger on it. so, when they told me that would happen, i didn't believe it. i thought everybody would notice right away, but they didn't. they just thought, "well, your hair's different. what'd you do?" and so i just -- in some cases, people that were close to me, i told them. other people, i just let them guess. and so i think that's important for women especially to know is that you're gonna look great. you're gonna feel great. >> when i first got my hair, i was a little nervous about going into the fire station because that is one group of guys that love to pull pranks and kid you and razz you. so, i was real nervous about that, but when i went in, they said, "we couldn't wait to get you here so we could razz you, but now that we see you, there's nothing we can say 'cause it looks so good." >> i took control. i went to hair club. i got my hair back, and i look great. >> i would get compliments from my husband. my two sons would compliment me. the people on my job, they would
5:08am
look at me, like, "there's something different. what did you do?" and they would look at my hair -- "what did you do?" and i would say, "did it look good?" knowing in the back of my mind that it was the hair club experience that made the difference. >> hair club is also a leader in hair therapies, with its extreme hair therapy program. >> in hair club, we also have what we call our ext program, or extreme hair therapy, which includes a number of really high-quality hair-care products. a topical medical treatment that is fda-approved for treating thinning hair, as well as the first fda-cleared home-use laser comb. >> hair club also offers, in select areas, the gold standard in hair transplantation -- microscopic follicular unit hair transplants. it's natural, permanent, and your transplanted hair is guaranteed to grow mother nature programmed it to. >> we work with our clientele together to determine the best
5:09am
option for them, and we take into consideration age, the extent of their hair loss, and what their expectations are, both in terms of the amount of hair they want, the thickness they want, and how soon they want to have some results. my job is to give them the most natural-looking hair transplant they could possibly have and to see to it that when that person looks in the mirror after his hair grows in, that's the person they want to see. >> when you actually see the hair grow, you're amazed. you're watching it grow day by day from a thinner look to a fuller look till you can do the things that you've always wanted to do with your hair, using different products and styling your hair differently. >> i finally went to the hair club, and i found that they had the best technology, and they were far superior than everyone else. they treated me like a family, like i was somebody important. i decided to go with them, and the results speak for themselves. people would just kind of look at you and wonder, "what's
5:10am
going on? this guy's looking younger and younger," and i'm feeling better and better about it. and it just -- it's a great feeling. >> hair club is the only company that offers all proven hair-loss solutions, backed by a guarantee of satisfaction. if you are not 100% satisfied with the option you've chosen, hair club will apply your initial purchase price to any of its other proven hair-loss solutions. hair club has changed many people's lives. you might not know it now, but i used to have a hair-loss problem. is your hair loss bothering you? maybe it's time you did something about it. when we come back, we'll introduce the people who can help you find the right solution. >> male announcer: don't tolerate another day of hair loss or thinning hair. because now the solution you need to get a fuller, natural-looking head of hair is just one phone call away. hair club is the only company in the world to offer all tested and proven hair-loss solutions, because no single solution is right for every type of hair loss. call hair club now for this free

5:25am
>> announcer: if you're looking to make more money and take control of your personal and financial future, then get ready, because than merrill, the star of a&e's hit tv show "flip this house," one of the most successful real-estate investors in the country and america's number-one real-estate-investing expert has one heck of an opportunity for you. than is hosting a one-of-a-kind free two-hour real-estate wealth-building workshop where you will learn his three-step system for getting started flipping homes and buying and holding income properties. than and his team are currently looking for a small group of motivated individuals who want
5:26am
to work directly with his team and learn the exact step-by-step system he's used to flip hundreds of properties over the past decade. at this event, you will learn exactly how you can do this without needing money, credit, or any prior experience. so, if you've always had the desire to get into real estate, or you're already in real estate, this event is the perfect opportunity for you to learn than's system. than's system has created thousands of success stories around the country and helped numerous people make money and change their financial futures forever. >> just a few months ago, i attended one of than merrill's training events. since then, i've sold two properties, i have six houses under construction, and i have three houses under contract. in fact, the house behind me i just sold and made $38,000. i'm providing a better life for my daughter, and i'm absolutely loving life. now i'd like to introduce you to the man who changed my life, my mentor and friend, than merrill. >> if you're looking to increase
5:27am
your income, become less dependent on a job, spend more time with your friends and family, and ultimately have more fun and freedom in your life, then stick with me, because i'm gonna show you how you can have all of those things and more by learning my proven three-step system for investing in real estate. i'm than merrill, star of a&e's hit tv show "flip this house." over the past 10 years, i've become a self-made multi-millionaire buying and selling hundreds of properties just like the one behind me that are probably right in your neighborhood. over the course of this program, i'll also gonna show you properties i've made money on in the past few months and take you to properties that i'm currently flipping right now, like this one. and i'm gonna show you how different your life could be using my system to invest in real estate. real estate has completely changed my life, and for the past few years, i've been able to share that passion through our live training events, and nothing has been more rewarding to me. these events have helped
5:28am
thousands of regular, everyday people get started investing in real estate the right way, which has ultimately and dramatically changed their lives. >> i wasn't sure if we could do this on a part-time basis, because we both work full-time, but after completing the training, we've closed six deals, and we are loving life. >> now, you might be sitting there thinking, "than, why real estate, and why right now?" well, what's currently going on in this country is really scary. the middle class is literally disappearing. i'm talking about people, maybe like you, who earn between $40,000 to $200,000 a year, who are losing ground. here's what's happening. over the last decade, middle-class families have lost 1/3 of their net worth because wages are falling and inflation is rising. you know, the old idea that you work hard and you pay your dues that you'll get ahead might be giving you false hope, and sadly, for the first time in history, a lot of people are not
5:29am
gonna be better off than their parents. you see, the reality is if you're relying on someone else -- the government or a job -- you might be putting yourself and your family at risk. and it only takes something as common as a job loss or a divorce or an unexpected family health problem, and you could go from a normal, middle-class family to newly poor practically overnight. realize this could happen to you, and that's why it's so important for you to get a financial education and take the proper steps to take care of your family. and the best way to do this is through real-estate investing. statistics show that real-estate investing is the most likely way to achieve financial independence, and more average, everyday people have become millionaires through real-estate investing than anything else. in fact, the irs reported that, over the past 50 years, of all the americans who declared more than a million dollars on their income-tax returns, 71% of them
